Introducing the Model 2470 High Voltage SourceMeter® The next Interactive Source-Measure Unit Instrument with a Capacitive Touchscreen


Keithley 2470 High Voltage SourceMeter SMU


The NEW Keithley 2470 High Voltage SourceMeter Source Measure Unit Instrument, is the next SMU in a series of interactive SMU bench instruments. The Model 2470 not only includes all of the current and voltage ranges available in the original Model 2410 SourcesMeter 1000V, 1A DC, 20 Watt 4-Quadrant Source/Sink, launched in 1996), but adds two new low current ranges, 100nA and 10nA, a new intermediate 200V range. The 2470 leverages the intuitive touchscreen and icon-based control from the successful Models 2450, 2460 and 2461. No source-measure unit in a ½ rack form factor offers these kinds of capabilities.

The Model 2470 combines the functionality of a precision power supply, true high current source, 6-1/2 digit precision multimeter, electronic load, trigger controller, and pulse generator in one tightly integrated, half-rack instrument. All this combined with the legendary Keithley precision, resolution, accuracy, and dependability will allow engineers and scientists to Touch, Test, Invent®.

Learn faster; Work smarter; Invent easier

The 2470 features a five-inch, full-color, high resolution touchscreen that supports intuitive operation, helps operators become familiar with the instrument quickly, and optimizes overall speed and productivity. A simple icon-based menu structure reduces the number of steps required to configure a test by as much as 50 percent and eliminates the cumbersome multi-layer menu structures typically used on soft-key instruments. Built-in, context-sensitive help supports intuitive operation and minimizes
the need to review a separate manual. These capabilities, combined with the 2470’s high versatility, simplify its operation in both basic and advanced measurement applications, regardless of the user’s previous experience in working with SMU instruments.

Ease of Use Beyond the Touchscreen

In addition to its five-inch color touchscreen, the 2470 front panel offers a variety of features that enhance its speed, user-friendliness, and learnability, including a USB 2.0 memory I/O port, a HELP key, a rotary navigation/control knob, a front/rear input terminal selector button, and banana jacks for basic bench applications. The USB 2.0 memory port simplifies storing test results and instrument configurations, uploading test scripts into the instrument, and installing system upgrades. All front-panel buttons are backlit to enhance visibility in low-light environments. Four Quick Setup modes simplify instrument setup. With
one touch, the instrument can be quickly configured for various operating modes without the need to configure the instrument indirectly for this operation.

Comprehensive Built-in Connectivity

Rear panel access to rear-input connectors, remote control interfaces (GPIB, USB 2.0, and LXI/Ethernet), a D-sub 9-pin digital I/O port (for internal/external trigger signals and handler control), instrument interlock connector, and TSP-Link® connectors make it simple to configure multiple instrument test solutions and eliminate the need to invest in additional adapter accessories.

Unmatched System Integration and Programming Flexibility

When a Keithley 2470 is configured into a multi-channel I-V test system, its embedded Test Script Processor (TSP®) allows it to run test scripts, so users can create powerful measurement applications with significantly-reduced development times. TSP technology also offers channel expansion without a mainframe. Keithley’s TSP-Link® channel expansion bus can connect multiple 2470s and other TSP instruments, including Keithley’s other graphical SourceMeter instruments (2450, 2460, 2461),
Keithley’s DMM7510, DMM6500, and DAQ6510 graphical multimeters, Series 2600B System SourceMeter SMU instruments, and Series 3700A Switch/Multimeter systems, in a master-subordinate configuration that operates as one integrated system. The TSP-Link expansion bus supports up to 32 units per GPIB or IP address, making it easy to scale a system to fit an application’s particular requirements.
